Sorry if this has been covered.... but I didn't see any specifics....
When dipping crankbaits in DN are you dipping the entire lure including the entire lip? I have a few DT knockoffs that have a pretty long lip, and just wondering if I should just dip far enough to cover the painted body and joint between the body lip or submerge the whole thing? Also.... on smaller cranks, I'd assume to dip the whole bait?

I usually dip to cover the nose of the bait. If you are dipping a repaint with a scuffed lip, dipping the lip too makes it transparent again.

Thanks Bob.... I figured just going slightly past the body onto the lip was the best method.... I try to polish out the lips as much as possible, so using the DN to cover that small area that is tough to get to will help as well!!!
